Shut up, you liar!

The fool: “You saw it and you didn’t fix it, you obviously don’t love me, so I’ll do it myself . . .”

Me: “Shut up, you liar. I’m not thinking that about my husband, he loves me and that’s all I care to know”


The fool: “I’m surely going to get fired, there’s no time to finish this project . . .”

Me: “Shut up, you liar. I might not finish it, but the only person getting fired is you. Out of my head!”


The fool: “I’m so tired and sleepy, I can’t pray. God must be so disappointed in me. I’ll never be who He wants me to be . . .”

Me: “Shut up, you liar. I am the righteousness of God in Christ. His love is not dependent on my prayer timetable. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to sleep off in the arms of my Father”


The fool: “I’m such a horrible parent . . . “

Me: “Shut up, you liar. (Roll my eyes and continue instilling the much-needed discipline with all the love in my heart)


The fool: “Oh no, he didn’t just cross me. I need to give him a piece of my mind . . .”

Me: “Shut up, you liar. I have better things to do!”


A Silent Voice: Go and pray with her, she needs your support.

The fool: What? I’m sure she’s fine. Besides I need to be careful, I don’t want to get involved in any spiritual battles that are really not my concern. 

Me: “Shut up, you liar. One will chase a thousand, and two, ten thousand. See you on the battlefront.” (Holds hands with my sister and begins to pray in the language of the Spirit)


The fool: I can’t take it anymore. Life is so hard. Nothing is working. No one loves me. It’s never going to get better. I need to end this!

Me: Shut up, you liar. You fool. As long as there is life, there is hope. As long as I have breath, I have a purpose. You’re after my soul, but today, you have failed. You’ll come back another day, but I’ll always know you for the liar that you are.


What other thoughts cross your mind and you think they are from you, but they are actually the voice of the liar trying to sow seeds in your heart, hoping you’ll run with it and cause it to multiply?


He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44 (ESV)

    1. It makes me understand why the Lord’s prayer is so complete. Jesus prayed that the Father would deliver us from the evil one. He knew exactly what he was saying. God bless you too, brother. And may we remain under the shadow of God’s wings

    1. That’s why he’s the expert of deception, all he has is smoke and mirrors to cause diversion. But you and I are of Christ. And as He daily renews our minds, we realise that it wasn’t always us sounding like the fool…


  1. The fool: God will never come through for you, don’t you see you’re about to go down
    Me: Shut up! His words says that He will come through and all His ways are prefect and so it doesn’t matter what is happening, He is here, there and will come through big time!

  2. Tosin, This is good. Yes, one of the tools of Satan is to put thoughts into our heads and then accuse us of having the thoughts ourselves. This is not to say that we don’t have the wrong kinds of thoughts sometimes, but that I know what you are talking about here. We hear the thoughts in our minds, but they aren’t our thoughts. It is Satan trying to introduce those thoughts into our minds hoping we will latch on to them and make them our own thoughts. So, we have to put on the armor of God, as you did here, and fight off his lies with the truth.
